A Study on Faceted Navigation in Next-Generation Library Catalog
Yoo, Yeong-Jun ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 28, issue 3, 2011, Pages 13~30
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2011.28.3.013
Faceted navigation has brought a lot of changes to traditional library catalog and is one of the resource discovery interfaces in next-gen library catalog. Faceted navigation usually divides too much retrieved results into some relevant facets for user`s convenient navigation. The faceted navigation of 9 libraries adopting resource discovery interfaces was analyzed in this article. The terms are much broader or different from the users` terms so that the users can`t properly use the facets. It is essential to maintain consistency with using the terms to provide users with faceted navigation service and this study has found how exactly authority work was done in analysis of the author facets. Also, public libraries introducing faceted navigation need to consider including some facets for various users and university libraries need to consider detailed division of resource types.
A Study on the Relationship Between the Self-efficacy on the Information Literacy and the Level of Academic Achievement
Kim, Sung-Won ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 28, issue 3, 2011, Pages 31~46
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2011.28.3.031
Information literacy of the individuals affects their competitive capability significantly by providing problem solving skills in the short run, and by enabling life-long learning in the long run. This study examines if information literacy capacity has any relationship with individuals` achievement level through the experiment with college student subject group. As evidences for individual achievement level, we adopted GPA`s(grade point average) of students. As a result, it was confirmed that information literacy and academic achievements has positive relationship. Additionally, it has been found that this relationship has a tendency of sustaining for a significant period. These experiment results would serve as a rationale for providing information literacy courses in the academic curriculum.

DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2011.28.3.047
This study analysed the librarian competencies and job type to identify the present state of required librarians and to suggest the direction for education in the organization of information. As the result of investigation 278 job announcement, the traditional qualifications and the knowledge of new standard and S/W related electronic resources are required. The job type divided between cluster for the traditional demands and cluster for electronic resources and information technology. It proposed the expansion of education related electronic resources and information technology, the balance of theory and practice, and the adoption of new teaching method for education in the organization of information.
A Study on Using the Role Indicators to Improve the Description Methods of the Statement of Responsibility
Park, Zi-Young ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 28, issue 3, 2011, Pages 65~82
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2011.28.3.065
Statement of responsibility in bibliographical records plays a key role in clarifying intellectual responsibility of the work, and it also plays a role in making up access points. However, cataloging rules for the statement of responsibility mostly deal with the distinction between the principal role and minor roles. This becomes a problem because the responsibility type itself is more important than the order of the types. For this reason, in this paper I will explore improvements of the description methods of statement of responsibility by organizing the role indicators. Namely, using the role indicators more effectively than the current description methods do, we can collocate the dispersed statements of responsibilities. The role indicators can also be used for an author facet in information retrieval and can provide additional information for authority control.
A Study on the Model for Construction Records Classification System
Park, Yong-Boo ; Kim, Tae-Soo ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 28, issue 3, 2011, Pages 83~101
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2011.28.3.083
The international standards, ISO 15489 and Family Code, recommend using functional classification method both in public and private organizations. In this study made a comparative analysis of the details of classification systems through case studies on records classification systems of a total of seven comprehensive construction companies in Korea including three large corporations and four small and medium-size businesses. Findings of this study suggester the direction of developing construction records classification system and its methodology. By summarizing classification standards derived from these case studies, key construction records classification standards were presented.
A Study on Application of Resource Types of RDA to KCR4
Lee, Mi-Hwa ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 28, issue 3, 2011, Pages 103~121
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2011.28.3.103
This study is to seek to apply resource types of RDA to KCR4. It is difficult to choose appropriate term and to embody FRBR model because GMD of KCR4 is the mixture of content-based vocabularies and carrier-based vocabularies. SMD is to need to reflect the current technological terms. Resource type of RDA was already developed to overcome limitation of AACR2`s GMD, and would affect the world cataloging environment, therefore it is need to apply resource type of RDA to Korean cataloging rule. For this study, case study and survey were used. In case study, it was to scan all GMD term for one university library to build by programming and to grape librarian and users` potential need. In the survey by cataloging librarian, it was to figure out the current description of resource type in university library and to test RDA resource type. As a result, it was needed to revise the vocabulary to the obvious and user-understandable list. Also it was different in correction rate in RDA testing by resource type. Based on the case study and the survey, RDA resource type was applied to KCR4 resource list by adding term such as computer game in content type, and by inserting terms such as DVD, CD-ROM, Blu-Ray, computer file in carrier type. It also applied RDA description method and display means to KCR4. This study would apply RDA resource type to KCR4 and contribute to revise KCR4 resource type.
A Study of Ontology-based Context Modeling in the Area of u-Convention
Kim, Sung-Hyuk ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 28, issue 3, 2011, Pages 123~139
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2011.28.3.123
Context-awareness as a key technology of ubiquitous computing needs a context model that understands and processes situational information coming from diverse sensors and devices, and can be applied diversely in various domains. Semantic web based ontologies use structured standard format and express meaning of information, so it is possible to recognize effectively context-awareness situations, allowing the system to share information and understand situation by inference. In this paper, we propose a layered ontology model to support generality and scaleability of the context-awareness system, and applied the model to u-Convention domain. In addition, we propose a effective reasoning method to handle compound situation by combining OWL-DL and SWRL rules.
A Comparative Analysis of Subject Headings Related to Korea in the National Library OPACs of Major Countries
Kim, Jeong-Hyen ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 28, issue 3, 2011, Pages 141~162
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2011.28.3.141
This research was conducted to analyze the actual condition of data related to Korea shown in the catalog of 15 countries. This study was to compare the subject characteristics of Korea-related subject heading, record collection, and the characteristics of several subject heading, which has been a major issue. The results are as follows. To begin with, Korea-related record in most other national libraries runs absolutely short except for some countries like United States. Korea-related record is generally 2 to 3 times less than Japan related record. Second, referring to the subject distribution in sub criteria of Korea-related record, subject related to `history` and `economy` is shown in the highest rate. Considering that `Korean war` shows the highest rate in Italy and Canada, we can consider that this may cause the distortion of the perception of Korea. Third, in the case of Korea-related record, the record of South Korea is 1.5 to 5 times more than that of North Korea, except for some countries like United States. Forth, regarding the subject headings, the terms such as `Taekwondo`, `Kimchi`, `Tok-do`, `Tong-hae` have different meanings in different countries. However, these terms agree to LCSH in most countries except for neighboring countries. Fifth, in case of China and Japan, the subject headings in reference to political and historical position are raising some problems.
Applications of Geographic Information Systems in LIS
Park, Sung-Jae ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 28, issue 3, 2011, Pages 163~178
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2011.28.3.163
Using the library users` data in Lake County Public Library Systems, Florida, US, this study discussed how geographic information systems can be applied in LIS fields. These data were analyzed with such GIS functions as geocoding, Thiessen polygon, density, buffer, and distance measurement. Results indicate that findings from a study of these functions allowed for, not only a better understanding of the geographic locations of library users and user`s library activity patterns, but also for the ability to identify library market areas for future library service planning. Additionally, results from a study of the Thiesen polygon and buffer functions indicated the distance impact on library use. Regarding the travel distance of library users, the measurement of distance using road networks was suggested.
Applications of Geographic Information Systems in Public Library Marketing
Lee, Seong-Sin ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 28, issue 3, 2011, Pages 179~195
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2011.28.3.179
The purpose of this study is to investigate the implications that GIS(Geographic Information Systems) can have in public library collection selection and service development from a marketing perspective. GIS is a computer system capable of assembling, storing, manipulating, and displaying geographically referenced information. Through the understanding and utilization of GIS, we can collect geographical, transportation, political, legal, demographic, economic, social, cultural, educational, and recreational information of the community. Public libraries can utilize GIS for market research, including customer analysis to select library collection and develop library service based on library users` needs. As a result, public libraries can find a way to make a lasting relationship with users which is the final goal of marketing activities.
A Study on the Web Accessibility of University Library Web Sites
Kim, Young-Gon ; Oh, Chang-Gyu ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 28, issue 3, 2011, Pages 197~217
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2011.28.3.197
Web accessibility refers to the practice of providing equal access to web sites to people without and with disability. This study aims to investigate the web content accessibility of 153 university libraries in Korea, and further suggest the approach to implement an effective university library web site to meet Korean Web Content Accessibility Guidelines(KWCAG). Survey was conducted with two steps. The first step was to find out the general level of web accessibility of all university library web sites using an automatic appraisal tool, KADO-WAH2.0, and the detailed examination of web accessibility check items was limited to 19 web sites which proved excellent in automatic appraisal. Regretfully, the result says that there is no perfect web site. Therefore every university library is advisable to make good use of the findings to meet all the requirements of KWCAG. In particular, the basic requirements, such as voice service, resizing and highlighting text, must be fulfilled by priority and to almost all contents.
A Study on the Factors Affecting Continuance Use of Knowledge Management System
Lee, Hong-Jae ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 28, issue 3, 2011, Pages 219~238
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2011.28.3.219
The purpose of this study is to examine the causal relationships among knowledge management system(KMS) quality, perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness, attitude, and continuance use of KMS. The results of data analysis by structured equation model(SEM) indicate that KMS quality significantly influences individual`s perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness. Perceived ease of use affects individual`s perceived usefulness on KMS. Individual`s perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness affect on the creation of a positive attitude, and attitude affects continuance use of KMS. Based on the results, theoretical and practical implications of this study are discussed.
A Study of Human Resource Practices Affecting Knowledge Sharing and Utilization in Public Organization
Lee, Hyang-Soo ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 28, issue 3, 2011, Pages 239~256
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2011.28.3.239
Main drivers of knowledge activities such as knowledge sharing and utilization are individual members of an organization and thus knowledge management strategies should be discussed in relationships with human resource management. This study analyzes the effects on knowledge sharing and knowledge utilization of human resource management practices such as training, participation in decision-making, performance appraisal and compensation system in local government. The results show that training and performance appraisal and compensation system are significantly influential factors for the knowledge sharing and knowledge utilization. Lessons and implications of this study for management leadership are presented.

This study aimed to identify the problems by analyzing the actual condition based on the legal requirements among Saemaul mini-libraries in Busan Metropolitan City. The results are like these. There were 154 Saemaul mini-Libraries. Of them, the rate of Small-Libraries which satisfied the requirements of a municipal library to the Library Act was 0%(0) in part of building floor space, 1%(1) in part of a reading room, 40%(59) in part of the data in a library and 31%(45) in the number of books to be supplemented per year. Mini-library which satisfied as the requirements for a small-scale public library was 37%(58) in part of the floor space, 66%(101) in part of a reading room, and 73%(112) in part of data in a library. 50%(77) of the mini-library was open more than 5 days per week. 52% (80) Mini-libraries was open for more than 5 hours per day. mini-library with permanent professionals(librarians) was only 1%(2). Mini-libraries of 99%(152) were non-professional workers(no librarians). For the average budget per year, 81%(127) spent less than 10 million won. 5%(5) received government subsidies. The mini-library of 74%(114) spent less than 5 million won on average for purchasing materials. Most of mini-libraries didn`t meet the requirements of small-scale libraries to be private libraries or public libraries. It was also found that mini-libraries had various features on the location.

Kwak, Seung-Jin ; Bae, Kyung-Jae ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 28, issue 3, 2011, Pages 313~333
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2011.28.3.313
Many e-book readers have become available as e-books are in popular use these days. We first developed the evaluation criteria and elements for testing the usability of e-book readers and then examined the usability of three e-book readers. The usability testing was conducted using three e-book readers that were most popular with 15 participants that consisted of middle school students, university students, and office workers. The study found that iPad showed the best usability. In case of Amazon Kindle, participants indicated that the lack of the touch function imposed a great deal of negative impact on the usability of the interface. Also, the hardware- and software-oriented usability provided by an e-book reader was considered to be a very important element for the users, and the portability in connection with the hardware-oriented aspect of an e-book reader was shown to be of great effect to the overall usability of an e-book reader.
A Study on Measuring the Change of the Response Results in Likert 5-Point Scale Measurement
Noh, Young-Hee ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 28, issue 3, 2011, Pages 335~353
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2011.28.3.335
This study examines how and which direction respondents who participated in 5-point Likert scale surveys change their initial responses when they are given an identical second survey after certain treatments. The research employs three identical questionnaires (first, second and third surveys) to analyze survey results based on group differences, kinds of treatment, survey purposes, and response change direction and the degree. This paper concludes that, first, it is significant that specialist groups do not change their initial responses compared to a general librarian group. Second, there are no differences by survey purpose; however, participants tend to change their initial responses by others` opinions rather than by previous use experiences. Third, participants who initially answered positively tend not to change their responses, and most participants who answered negatively change their initial responses in a positive direction. Fourth, when there are changes, participants change their initial responses by less than two points, and most of them change by one point. Finally, the hypothesis that middle responses change most and that participants who respond at both ends do not change their opinion was rejected by the finding that participants who answered on the negative end tend to change their initial responses in a positive direction.

Lee, Eun-Hee ; Lee, Jee-Yeon ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 28, issue 3, 2011, Pages 377~392
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2011.28.3.377
This paper aims to examine how users view information services that use today`s rapidly expanding smart phones and what their demands are. The research focus is specifically on public libraries where related studies or the provision of services is still lacking. For this study, users of public libraries were targeted for surveys and interviews. The results that Public library users showed positive views on using library information services and e-contents service on smart phones. But the users viewed smart phones as another point of access in accessing information services, not as something revolutionary to the existing library information services.
